1998 WR400F shifting issue

2 posts in this topic

Hi,

The bike has been running fine for months now. It endured long streches of higways at speeds of 60mph, and good dirt roads; but now, I am having problems shifting. Everytime I shift-up I can feel the next gear grind. So, shifting from 1st->2nd, it feels like it shifts into 2nd, and then it grinds a bit on the 3rd.

Tomorrow a friend will help me take it a part to peak into the transmission. I figured, why not ask here first. Oh, and I've searched for such issues and no luck

Some threads suggest bent or worn out forks, but those gents were having different simptoms. I can change into any gear, except the grinding of the next gear part. :bonk:

Yelp :bonk:
